Glander International Bunkering in Med expansion with Valencia office

Hernan Ortiz
Dubai-headquartered bunker trader Glander International has opened its seventh office globally in Valencia, Spain as it seeks to grow its Meditteranean business.

The new is helmed by Hernan Ortiz, who moved from Glander's headquarters, having worked for the company for nine years and some 28 years in the industry.

“By having Hernan in Spain, I am confident that Glander International Bunkering will strengthen its position in the Mediterranean hemisphere and beyond,” said Carsten Ladekjær, ceo of the Glander.

Looking at what was happening in the shipping industry he commented: "During the past few years, we have seen an increasing consolidation which we expect to continue going forward. Furthermore, the shipping industry is facing a radical change in 2020 with the new Sulphur regulations worldwide from IMO.

“For a company to steer through all these aspects, having a plan, knowing the timing and not least positioning of the right people in the right places is key.”

Ortiz added: “Our expertise in Spanish speaking markets in South America as well as our proximity to Algeciras, Gibraltar and the North African bunkering markets gives our new Spain office a unique upper hand for providing superior service.”
